The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen is one of the most powerful books I have ever read. I find myself drawn back to it again and again. The author masterfully portrays not only the inner feelings of the Prodigal Son and relates those feelings back upon us but he also portrays how, during different phases and times in our lives, we may relate to the elder son and the father and their inner feelings. It is a very good read and I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a Lenten Meditation.
I would be interested in hearing if this book affects you as it did me. It touched my very soul.
